22 NEBRASKAland • JUNE 2016 Our Top 15 By Renae Blum e all know that Nebraska is a photographer's dream, from the forested buttes in the west, to the rolling Sandhills plains, to the many lakes, rivers and fields bursting with wildlife. Every shutterbug has their favorite spot or two. Few of us, though, are lucky enough to travel the state for a living with a camera in hand. I asked NEBRASKAland Magazine staff photographers Jeff Kurrus, Jenny Nguyen, Julie Geiser, Justin Haag and Eric Fowler to name their favorite public spaces – namely state parks, state recreation areas and wildlife management areas – to stake out with a camera and capture Nebraska in the wild. Here, in no particular order, are their top 15 suggestions for your photography bucket list. e fo th sh are lucky enough W Photographers share their favorite places to take pictures in Nebraska parks 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE NE N BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BR BRAS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS AS ASKA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KA KAla la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la l nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd nd • JUN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UN UNE 201 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 016 Platte River State Park Eastern Nebraska "What Platte River State Park offers that a lot of others don't is big timber – a true forest setting," Kurrus said. "It lends itself to immediate intrigue. If you're an adventurous type, you can strap on a camera, grab your bike and go. You have easy access to some beautiful scenery." In addition, two observation towers afford enviable views of the Platte River, and a waterfall can be found along park trails. PHOTO BY JUSTIN HAAG PHOTO BY ERIC FOWLER
